Abstract

Communication during clinical consultations is an important factor that facilitates decision making by patients and family members. For clinicians, these interactions are opportunities to build rapport and facilitate appropriate decision making. This presentation will include descriptions of literature on communication between audiologists, patients, and their family members during initial audiology consultation. Speakers will detail effective communication patterns and clinical implication.
